Barack Obama is back.
The former President hit the campaign trail to help push Democrats into the winner’s circle.
But he used three words to attack Donald Trump that every Democrat instantly regretted.
Barack Obama Campaigns To Elect Democrats
Barack Obama showed up in Nevada to help the Democrats oust Republican Senator Dean Heller.
Public polling showed Heller taking the lead over his Democrat challenger, so the left was desperate.
That’s why they called in Obama – even though Obama has a horrible record of campaigning for losing candidates in 2010, 2014 and 2016.
Obama’s Presence Boosts GOP Turnout.
But Democrats need Obama to inspire their own base.
So they are taking the risk in order to try and defeat Heller.
Obama spoke at a rally held at the University of Nevada.
His speech reminded Americans why they rejected his handpicked candidates in previous elections.
Obama began by ripping Heller as a Trump stooge.
He claimed Heller did whatever Trump told him.
“The current senator — he doesn’t seem to be willing to stand up to this,” Obama ranted at a campaign event in Nevada for Democrat Senate candidate Jacky Rosen. “He just goes along — even when you get a sense that he knows it’s not right.”
This is a lie.
Heller’s political stock plummeted in 2017 because he did not support Trump enough.
He was a never-Trumper who did not back Trump in the 2016 election.
During the primary, Heller even drew a pro-Trump challenger – Danny Tarkanian – who was leading him in the polls.
So Heller crawled back to Trump and began supporting the President.
Tarkanian dropped out of the race to run for Congress.
And Heller’s political stock rebounded.
Democrats thought Nevada was a prime pick-up opportunity.
Now they are left scrambling because Heller’s pro-Trump position has boosted him in the lead to his Democrat challenger.
Barack Obama Lies About Trump
Obama then pivoted to another sore spot.
He blasted Trump for taking credit for the booming economy.
Obama falsely claimed he should get the credit.
“When you hear all this talk about ‘economic miracles’ right now, remember who started it,” he declared.
Obama oversaw the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.
He is lying when he says Trump doesn’t deserve the credit for the economy.
The stock market reached record highs because Americans saw the country was open for business again.
Trump ended Obama’s job-killing regulations.
He pulled America out of the Paris Global Warming Accords that would have redistributed America’s jobs and wealth to the third world.
Obama also attacked Trump for exposing the Deep State conspiracy that the Obama administration hatched to frame Trump for colluding with Russia.
He ranted, “That is not how America works. That is how some tin-pot dictatorship works.”
But in reality, Obama was the tinpot dictator.
Only in Banana Republics would the President use the country’s federal police force to spy on their political opponent.
And that is exactly what Obama did.
So this campaign speech will only remind Republican voters why they must turnout this November.
